Bluejam is a nightmare that seems to have no end. The series was the brainchild 
of subversive British satirist Chris Morris. Morris mixed ambient music, haunting 
monologues, bleak black comedy sketches, and other bizarre sounds to make a 
lingering sound-scape that sticks with you days and weeks after listening. The first 
series of Bluejam was aired in 1997, played in the early morning on BBC Radio 1. 
One segment was deemed so offensive that it was hurriedly cut off mid-broadcast. 
Bluejam is troubling. Bluejam is disturbing. Bluejam is unlike anything you'll ever 
hear— a dark descent into something totally oppressive and undeniably wonderful.

This Year — recapping the best podcasts.: #62: Blue Jam (Series 2) 

Chris Morris 

Christopher Morris is an English satirist, known for his black humor and 
controversial subject matter. The BFI has hailed his "uncompromising, moralistic 
drive." His tendency to avoid the media spotlight has seen him become one of the 
more enigmatic figures in British comedy. Morris teamed up with his radio 
producer Armando Iannucci to create a mock news radio programme On the Hour. 
Morris further developed the satirical news format with Brass Eye, which 
lampooned celebrities while focusing on themes such as crime and drugs. For 
many, the apotheosis of Morris' career was a Brass Eye special, which dealt with 
the moral panic surrounding pedophilia. It quickly became one of the most 
complained about programs in British television history, leading The Daily Mail to 
describe Morris as "the most loathed man on TV." (Adapted from the BBC's official 
biography of Morris.)
